From the brewery, Scotland.
Dark amber - brown with off-white head. Aroma of malt and some smoke. Flavor is balanced sweet from caramel and malt with fruit tones and a roast finish and medium bitterness. Best I’ve had from BOA.

330ml, Tesco. Not a bad taster. A medium red body, smooth tasting. Hints of cherry. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Bottled 50cl. It pours a beautiful amber beer with a creamy head. The nose is rather smoky, leafy, slightly milky accompanied by apples and dried fruits. Lots of honey, candy and malt in the taste. Slightly salty. The flavor is surprisingly good and delicately smoky. Nicely woody. A unique touch to the taste. Indeed, pleasantly woody and lightly smoky with some characteristics which remind me of honey. A very waxy taste. Some dissapointing hints of celery in this beer. Thin finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper coloured, small off-white head. A pretty smoky, toffee laden nose with earth-like nuances, candy sugar, straight barley and herbal undertones. The palate is toasty and caramelly and expanded over by a mild carbonation. Perhaps a bit simple in mouth, but a pleasant and more than fair offering.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle at 78, Glasgow. Deep russet colour with thin beige head. It’s been filtered and pasteurised, so pretty empty in mouth, some decet malt, bit of brown sugar, some raisin and red berry, bit of dry chocolate. Fine.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with offwhite head, which disappears quickly. Malty aroma with notes of bread, toffee, liquorice. A little to sweet to my taste and has an unpleasant metallic flavour.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt and green apple aroma. The flavour has some of the same characteristics, with a good bitterness. Rather one-dimensional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s a very muddy, brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and a bit of fruit. The mouth feel is flat. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, caramel, a hint of apple and a very light bitter finish.
